TAKING CHRIST'S YOKE




Sin, Satan, and the world,
To rule my heart combine ;
The throne have they usurped,
But, Lord, the right is thine :
Assert thy claim,
I humbly pray,
And quickly chase
These foes away.


From cruel bondage freed,
The iron fetters broke,
To Christ would I submit,
And bear his easy yoke :
Be he my king,
And rule with power,
His laws I íll keep,
His name adore.


Transform my heart, oh Lord,
And stamp thine image there,
Excite to lively faith,
And love and holy fear :
Then joy shall crown
My future days,
And all my work
Be prayer and praise.
